How social media has become our CNN
Social media has changed the way we view news.
Television networks always argue about who can break news first, but Twitter is emerging as the champion.
I found through Twitter around 10:15 last night that Osama bin Laden was killed.
I turned the channel to CNN and they couldn’t confirm the story for another 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, while we watched the news last night, Facebook was a great way to share and comment on the breaking news with family and friends in real-time.
It was interesting to read reactions in real-time and catch up on what happened.
What a great way of sharing with your “community” of friends, family and contacts.
